read & download ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Abigail Roux review According To Hoyle Ô eBook or Kindle ePUB Of those who came before The only men staving off total chaos are the few who take the letter of the law at its word and risk their lives to uphold it But in the West the rules aren't always played according to HoyleUS Marshals Eli Flynn and William Henry Washington are escorting two prisoners to New Orleans for trial when they discover there?. 35 stars but I m rounding down because I wouldn t read this one again or pursue seuelsIf there s one word to describe this novel it s complex It starts with the basic plot the tale of two US marshals responsible for transporting three criminals for their judgments Flynn and Wash are a little bit older a little world weary each fascinating in his own right Their prisoners are a trio of diversity the mute Cage the thug Hudson and the dandy gunslinger Dusty Rose Men are out to kill Rose ever since he refused to get involved in a heist of a mysterious artifact but Flynn is determined to deliver him regardless of how unsure Wash is In the midst of all this is the man who actually took on the artifact job the evil Stringer The story winds along from fascinating development to fascinating development spurred by characters that rise above Western archetypes to become fully fleshed entertaining peopleAnd yet I can with all honesty admit I won t be picking up the second book I m also less likely to purchase future work by this author even though I ve enjoyed her work in the pastIt bugs me to admit that This book has a ton of great stuff going for it The setting is richly explored as vivid and realistic as the men who inhabit it The men themselves aren t flat caricatures or easy to predict They re full of surprises as the best characters can be The plot itself is intriguing enough to keep pulling me along and if the artifact never really got explored well I was okay with that because it was about the journey to get there not the actual goal So in light of all that why isn t this a keeperIt all comes down to authorial voice The prose chokes on its own verbosity with redundant adverbs and dialogue tags dragging down any sense of pace and destroying my enjoymentIt s a symptom I got mired in with this author s collaborative work too They have a very popular series that I could barely get through the first book of because of its overuse of dialogue tags and adverbs That same symptom is on display in this though admittedly the dialogue tag abuse isn t uite as severe it wasn t uncommon in the collaborative work to find three four even five tags within a single paragraph of spoken dialogue all from the same person sometimes even repeating a tag Still it s very much in evidence What Why Rose uestioned incredulously Who gives a Boston dollar if they get the gold Let them have it No Flynn gritted out If we do that then you ll go and save your man and absuatulate while the rest Ab what now Rose interrupted in confusion Run off Disappear Flynn hissed in utter frustration Well if you mean run off then say run off Rose whispered in the same frustrated tone You ll save your man and run off then Flynn shot back as he covered his head with his hands in aggravation Are you concerned about me escaping or about retrieving those men Rose uestioned angrilyThe majority of the dialogue is characterized with these sorts of tags and often with some sort of addition to it either an adverb a prepositional phrase or a dependent clause It ends up creating a repetitive and redundant reading experience slowing down pacing when I needed it to be urgent or throwing me out of the story by reminding me that I m reading in the first placeThe adverb abuse is just as bad They litter the dialogue tags as well as the rest of the prose Finding sentences like this Cage blinked rapidly at him and Gabriel smiled crookedly is not uncommon Their prevalence just reminds me that I m being told a story not shown it and I crave getting details that will put me in the action rather distance me even furtherDo I think this is a deal breaker for other readers Absolutely not The fact that the plot and characters are so interesting will be than enough for a lot of people to not even notice things like this It wouldn t even be a deal breaker for me if it happened a couple of times within the text My problem arises from its freuency I tripped over redundancies and weak verbs the single most common reason for the adverbs on nearly every page so while I can certainly give the story its appropriate kudos for the characters and basic ideas I can t rate it any higher than I have because of the technical issues The metal planet relationship A study of celestial influence redundancies and weak verbs the single most common Lord Tedric Alien Realms A star book reason for the adverbs on nearly every page so while I can certainly give the story its appropriate kudos for the characters and basic ideas I can t 6 Verses That Can Change Your Life rate it any higher than I have because of the technical issues
